Music to Accompany Lauren Beukes' near-future South Africa
Part of my Around the World Challenge is an endless hunt for the perfect music to accompany a book. If a book is historical or blatantly references music, it is easy. In reading Moxyland, I knew I wanted to be listening to something frenzied and tech-heavy, and came across a genre of music in South Africa called Drum and Bass. It is largely dominated by a band called Counterstrike, and this is EXACTLY what I had in my head. Enjoy!
